Re: OpenTimelineIO Charter

I had similar questions about initial membership. In talking with other ASWF project leads at SIGGRAPH, they all said it is best to start with the people contributing the majority of the code (e.g. the Committer role). The emphasis for the TSC is on the T (Technical) so the project is driven by the people doing the work. We haven't yet been tracking those people in the CONTRIBUTORS file, but Github helpfully provides this starting point: https://github.com/PixarAnimationStudios/OpenTimelineIO/graphs/contributors

I'm not sure about the "Series Manager" either.

John, can you clarify these for us?

Hi all,

I looked over the TSC charter template and had a couple clarifying questions.

For section 2b about establishing the TSC, It seems like in OTIO’s case the initial TSC members could be a bit ambiguous given the charter's definition. Would the `CONTRIBUTING` file be updated to make this more explicit for this project before officially absorbing into ASWF governance?

Also, I see "Series Manager" is referred to but I'm unclear where this role is actually defined. Is this at the ASWF level, the LF level?

Aside from those clarifications, I really like the overall tone of constructive collaboration and inclusion. I'm excited for us to complete our transition into ASWF!
